michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
to what people are expecting from the first lady michelle obama's speech tonight. >> look, that is part of the reason for the excitement because first of all, have you these people and the configuration as you can see behind me, i'm above the podium which is a really great vantage point. as you can see, people are -- very, few people, very few delegations are actually on the floor. it is a bowl. they are up and around on the sides. that is, i think, making it sound a lot larger, louder, than it actually might be. it is very loud. they are very excited and they are not all here yet. there are a lot of empty seats. typically people are at dinner now but will be here in time for the keynote address. people are excited to hear castro the keynote speaker, but principally this is michelle obama's night. she is already throughout the campaign. they sent sought an e-mail a half hour ago asking people to text and send in $3 donations in advance of her speech. she told ryan seacrest today on his radio show she had not watched ann romney's speech and came here briefly to look at the stage and look
and his wife, michele obama. >> michele was unbelievable. >> and joe biden. >> john kerry. >> john kerry did well, biden did well, clinton was incredible, michele obama was incredible. but you know, it -- >> it's a high bar to clear for the guy. >> and also, though, if you want to compare it to tampa, i mean, obviously so much -- >> they had to hold everyone back. >> so much better than everybody at tampa. we're not going to even -- but as far as substance goes, i agree. >> beautiful. >> he said nothing, but he said nothing so much better than mitt romney said nothing. >> yeah. >> which i was talking -- >> that's it. >> let's be clear, we were talking about how high the bar was for obama. talk about mitt romney, it's a low bar for mitt romney to clear that bar. he was somewhere in between those things. i thought the first two-thirds of the speech, and many people have said this, it did feel like a state of the union speech. little bit of a laundry list and very -- not just as mark said, not only did he say nothing new, he said nothing bold and he said nothing very specific. you know, one
michele obama to that list now. >> oh, my gosh. the reaction from that speech has been -- i mean i have heard from people from all walks of life who were completely moved by that speech and brought to tears. i don't even think they expected it to be that good. she was excellent. >> yeah. >> it was her execution that just brought it home. >> her speech was tough. she delivered it well. >> hours before last night's big speeches there was an awkward and unexpected moment on the convention floor, amid criticism from mitt romney, and other top republicans, democrats held a last-minute vote to reinsert the word "god" into the party platform and to declare jerusalem the capital of israel. >> the matter requires a two-thirds vote in the affirmative. all those delegates in favor, say aye. all those delegates opposed say no. >> in the opinion of the -- let me do that again. all of those delegates in favor, say aye. >> aye. >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no. >> i, um, i guess -- you got to let them do what they're going to do. >> i'll do that one more time. all those delegates in favor,
. look what has happened over the past couple of days. to call what first lady obama, michelle obama did on tuesday tonight a speech is to almost be an insult. that was a conversation. that was a national conversation about her values, her family values, and what she and the president, how they were raised. how he governs. that was enormous. that speech will be talked about for the next five decades in what michelle obama did. last night, bill clinton, that was a textbook explanation of what's really been going on over the last four years and the president broke it down as if he was talking to each of us individually in a personal conversation. he just laid out the case, which i think sets a platform for tonight, for the president to hit a home run. >> all right. one of the parts of political conventions when there's a president running for re-election a lot of chatter who is looking at 2016. you're going to like this, mr. mayor, cory booker visited the iowa delegation and revealed i had 94-year-old grandmother was born in iowa. >> the population of iowa grows -- there's way more people
with the prime time speech from first lady michelle obama. we're here live. >>> republican vice presidential nominee paul ryan joins us to talk about where he thinks the presidential race is headed and chris sichl that he played fast and loose with the truth. >>> out and about. the prince makes his first public appearance since those naked las vegas pictures surfaced and poked fun at himself. but it was a cheeky 6-year-old who nearly stole the show. >>> the gentle giant, michael clarke duncan, oscar nominated star of "the green mile" died after a heart attack. tributes are pouring in from some of hollywood's biggest names today, tuesday, some of hollywood's biggest names today, tuesday, september 4th, 2012. captions paid for by nbc-universal television >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" tuesday morning, i'm savannah guthrie in charlotte, north carolina. >> i'm matt lauer in new york. savannah, republicans had their moment in the spotlight last week. starting today, down there in charlotte, the democrats will try to grab some of that spotlight for themselves. >> that's right. this conve
're going to see ann romney, we're going to see michelle obama as two of the most effective figures in this campaign. >> not two of the most, the two most effective campaigners in both campaigns. i don't think there's any question about that. michelle obama will lead it off next week in charlotte for her husband. i happen to believe, and you know the kind of family in which i have been raised, i'm living with all women, and i have been witness to this both in my wife and my daughters and now my grand daughters, i think this is the century of women. i really do believe that. >> hooray! >> there's going to be more gains made by more women across every part of our lives. cultural, political, and economic. and i think that there is even among some republican women out there, that that party doesn't quite buy into that yet. i mean, there are extraordinary achievements made by nikki haley and condi rice and everyone else. but the real issue on this campaign, for women, will be will social issues, or economic issues, will one trump the other? because the social issues are very important to
antonio mayor jewulian castro a will wrap up with a speech by first lady michelle obama. tomorrow will include speeches by massachusetts senate candidate elizabeth warren and former president bill clinton followed by the delegate roll call to nominate president obama for a second term. >> did you see the article in politico about how elizabeth warren is a star here but is having trouble gaining traction in massachusetts. mike, you said it a long time ago, she is a national star for the democratic party but in her own state she's trailing by 5 points and there a lot of democrats that always vote democrat that like brown. they say he's one of us, he's what we would say in the south a good ol' boy. he's not exactly good ol' boy but he talks like those guys who call into boston radio stations bitching about the red sox. that's his persona. i don't know if that's really him but he's got it now. >> again, these two guys can tell you, maybe buttress this point of view, massachusetts is more than cambridge and beacon hill. it's a very moderate state once you get past 128, the outer beltwa
of xcompetitive people. one person in the entire circle more competitive than him and that's michelle obama. this is someone who wants to win and gets very fired up. >> she doesn't come off that way. >> believe me, she wants to win even more badly than he does. >> you've written two books on president obama. you did "renegade" all about the campaign and then you did did "revival" the first two years of the presidency. how did you come to do those books? >> well, what's that woody allen line about09% of life is just showing up? i showed up. i showed up from springfield, illinois, all the way through to the end of the obama campaign on election night four years ago and, you know, you build up relationships and experiences and a perspective and so there were surprisingly few people who followed the whole journey. you couldn't understand the campaign unless were you in iowa in 2007 and i was and so that it self led to the first book and i thought the first book, the campaign was one thing but governing had proved so difficult and such a challenge. a fundamental challenge not just because of the
a little preview of what we're hearing from michelle obama, are we going to see the president at all tonight, a la mitt romney and ann romney last week? >> reporter: not exactly to see the president, chuck, but i am told he's going to watch the first lady's speech here at the white house, as you said, he's going to be campaigning all you day. he'll be back in time to watch her speech. so we know that is for certain, but as you mentioned, we're going to hear things from the first lady when she takes the podium this evening. she's really going to talk about her husband's values. she's going to talk a lot about why he understands the middle class. why he's the best candidate to defend the middle class and also going to defend his policies particularly as they relate to women. of course, that's a key constituency to president obama. she'll talk about the lilly ledbetter act, talk about health care, why the policies have been so beneficial to women and while she's not going to mention mitt romney by name, she is clearly going to try to draw a sharp contrast with mitt romney who, for examp
>>> tonight the main event here in charlotte. after powerful warm-ups from michelle obama. >> we must work like never before. >> and bill clinton, just last night. >> you must reelect president barack obama. >> tonight joe biden leads off and then the president makes his case for re-election. 3 f2 >> aquÍ estÁ brian williams. the primetime address by president obama and the beginning really of the final push, when americans wake up tomorrow morning, this election is suddenly 60 days away. now, as you know, the president's surrogates from the first lady to former president bill clinton have laid the groundwork for tonight and shortly we'll hear from vice president joe biden and then, of course, president barack obama. we were not supposed to be in here tonight. we were supposed to be across town in the football stadium. you see it there live, for what was supposed to be an outdoor celebration for upwards of 65,000 people, but the risk of rough weather was too great. it came through here late this afternoon. as of tonight, you can second guess this all evening. jim cantore, where
tonight. i've got to you if tonight is essentially afterglow from michelle obama's speech or is there a separate second night agenda for the democrats here leading up to the bill clinton speech? >> rachel, it looked for awhile there there were two versions of the democratic party. there was the clinton version and the barack obama version. that was a wrong perception a lot of us had. there are, in fact, two complimentary parts to the democratic party. the clinton part and the obama part. when they are together, it is a robust political party. when they are separated by division or bad feeling, they are not a strong political party. the clinton case has to come back for obama to win. it looks like it's coming back starting tonight. >> chris, are there any substantive differences between those two parts of the party you're talking about? any differences between clinton and obama that either need to be resolved or glossed over in order to make this sort of remarriage tonight work for the president? >> i don't know if it comes down to policy, but it certainly comes down to pol
obama today, he needs surrogates like clinton. he's got some now. he's got michelle, castro, rahm, he's got chuck schumer out there, a lot of people. he has duval patrick out there. he has a lot of people, perhaps dozens of them that can give speeches that punch back at the republicans. it doesn't have to be barack obama out there taking all the hits. he could have a whole team of people. he has to stop using staff. he has to stop using staffers like plouffe and axelrod and those people. he has to start using political principles. i think that's really important. i have somebody yelling back here. i'm be sure if it is positive or negative here. back to you, rachel. >> i'm pretty sure that is david axelrod to you saying he shouldn't be going on national television anymore. >> at a certain point volume trumps point of view. to chris's point about surrogates and what will happen next, it is not just president obama speaking tomorrow night. they've put the president and the vice president on the same night. vice president biden actually got a huge cheer tonight in the hall when president
fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our colleague and friend chris matthews. you said on opening night this week that democrats were having more fun than republicans. but that didn't necessarily mean that they were winning. the democrats have been ecstatic at previous conventions where they had gone on to lose. so how do you rate the democrats' happiness and their prospects? >> wow. you're hitting me with the toughest questions. there's two months left with a lot of economic news to come. we've got the unemployment rate coming out tomorrow morning. two m
tonight. michelle obama saying he is the same guy you elected four years ago and he's been through a lot and he hasn't changed. the other thing i want to point out the most retweeted line of the night was, made in america. something that the republicans did not have in any of their speeches. this president is amazing. he consumes the room. he doesn't miss anything. and i think that he made a real point tonight talking about manufacturing, talking about american jobs and made in america, that got retweeted more. it was 52,000 tweets per minute, according to the gov.org people that were out there paying attention to that. that is a record, by the way. >> why we are on new miracle analysis. halfway through the speech we got the response from the romney/ryan campaign which proves it was written before they got the speech, which you can definitely tell because the first line of it is tonight president obama laid out the choice in this election, making the case for more of the same policies that have worked in the past four years. the statement is on your screen there. the whole point of the f
who on the other side -- michelle obama knows him as a man, this man the vice president knows him as a president like nobody else knows him. and i think he communicated that tonight. >> i think that -- i totally agree with you. i think that bridges to something that ed said which is important which is nobody needs joe biden to be introduced to them. joe biden has a familiarity as a politician who first ran for president what 1987? >> yeah. >> it was in the 80s. he's been around for a long time. he is a familiar figure. but i actually think part of this reassurance was at the best and one of his ad-libs. that didn't always work. that's when he had a lot of trouble stumbling over his words in some case. he did ad-lib at one point and said folks, i've watched him. he never waivers. he asks the same thing over and over again. how will this work for working families. and said that's what's inside this man. that is what makes this man tick. he's saying trust me, you trust me. i'm joe biden. you know who i am. and you trust my judgment. and i'm telling you this guy is the real deal. to h
remain the hope of the earth. >> first lady michelle obama and mitt romney were campaigning today in virginia. and with only 54 days until the election, we have a new nbc/"wall street journal"/marist poll of that state and two other crucial battleground states, florida and ohio. joining me now to take us through the numbers is nbc political director and host of nbc's "daily rundown," chuck todd. what do we have to know about this poll? >> part of me wants to call these states the iron triangle of the battleground, if you will. it feels like all of the ways to 270 all go through these three states first. but let me start in virginia. this is where the president is sitting at a five-point lead. 49-44. ohio, his lead is a couple of points higher, 53 to 43. florida, on identical, 49-44, to what it is in virginia. all of these three states have the president sitting at 49 or 50. all of them have his job approval sitting at 49 or 50. and all of them for the first time since we've been polling in these swing states have the right track/wrong track above 40%. that's the first time we've s
school in hawaii, the guy that went to harvard -- >> if you saw michelle obama's speech -- >> that taught law school at the university of chicago, it fed into that narrative that he looked down on working class americans as people clinging to their -- >> no. >> i think both of the -- and i think it was devastating. i think it killed him in pennsylvania, he lost by ten points to hillary. he paid a great political price for it. and jon meacham, i would suggest he deserved to pay a great political price for those elitist comments out in san francisco. but now moving forward, i think we're going to see mitt romney, the same thing happen to mitt romney here, except this is again, this is in the general election campaign. this is not in the primary. >> 50 days out. >> man, i'll tell you what, this has been -- and we need to talk about this. i know it's 23 past, we've got to get going, but you combine the libyan press conference with this -- >> the politico stuff about -- >> the politico stuff, this has been a horrible week. the race is not over. he can turn it around. but this is one of the wor
